Goal From Over 60 Yards Out Secures Albacete’s LaLiga Promotion Playoff Spot

Javier Acuña with a monumental strike.

With two matches remaining in Spain’s Segunda División, Albacete has assured itself of at least a spot in the LaLiga promotion playoffs following Saturday’s 2-0 away victory over Sporting Gijón. 

The first goal was scored by Eugeni from the penalty spot, and the second arrived in the 58th from 30-year-old Paraguayan attacker Javier Acuña. Acuña’s effort was from well inside his own half, but the pace and accuracy on the strike beat Sporting keeper Dani Martín, a 20-year-old who’s represented Spain at the youth levels.  

Osasuna has already secured direct promotion to LaLiga next season, and Granada currently sits second (the other automatic promotion spot), four points above third place Albacete.
